“We currently own one car that is ten years old and one that is six years old. One is a Nissan and one is a Hyundai. They weren’t worth much when we bought them, and now they’re worth very little according to Kelly Blue Book. However, they are worth a lot to our monthly bottom line since they’re both paid off and cheap to insure and maintain! I’m sure someday we’ll need to trade up to newer used cars that can continue to be reliable and can better accommodate multiple car seats and junk on trips. But I’m very glad we have held onto our cars for now.
A few years ago we made a conscious to choice to buy a cabin instead of a car.”
